Alarm Synchronization
The U2000 LCT supports the ability to synchronize NE alarms automatically and manually. You
can manually synchronize NE alarms by performing operations through GUI or set an automatic
synchronization policy. When the U2000 LCT restarts or the communication with an NE
recovers, the NE sends an alarm to the U2000 LCT. This implements the automatic alarm
synchronization on the U2000 LCT, as shown in Figure 2-3.
Figure 2-3 Alarm Synchronization

The U2000 LCT supports the ability to synchronize NE alarm.


l

Manual synchronization
You can manually synchronize NE alarms by performing operations through GUI.

Automatic synchronization
You can set an automatic synchronization policy. After the U2000 LCT restarts, its
communication with an NE recovers, the NE sends an alarm to the U2000 LCT. This
implements the automatic alarm synchronization on the U2000 LCT.

Alarms are synchronized according to the following rules:


l

If an alarm is cleared on the NE but uncleared on the v, the alarm on the U2000 LCT is
cleared.

If an alarm exists on the NE but does not exist on the U2000 LCT, the alarm is added to
the U2000 LCT.

NE Alarm Suppression
U2000 LCT supports the ability to suppress NE alarms. If you set the status of an alarm to
Suppressed, the NE does not report the alarm.
The difference between NE alarm suppression and NMS alarm masking is as follows: If you
enable alarm masking, an NE still reports an alarm but the U2000 LCT does not receive the
alarm. If you enable NE alarm suppression, the NE does not report an alarm, as shown in Figure
2-4.

as the local time. The U2000 LCT can display the time based on the server time.
The NE that reports an alarm and the current U2000 LCT, however, may be in different time
zones. To learn the correct alarm generation time, the U2000 LCT automatically converts the
alarm generation time (NE time) into the local time of the client.

Optical Power Adjustment


You can perform the following operations on the U2000 LCT:
l

Manage the optical power: Query the input power, output power, and power thresholds of
each WDM board.

Perform intelligent power adjustment (IPA): In the case of a fiber cut, the optical amplifier
board detects signal loss at the local station. The local station reports an event to the U2000
LCT. After the event is confirmed, the optical amplifier boards at the upstream and
downstream stations reduce their output power to a safe value to protect fiber maintenance
engineers from being injured by the laser emitted from the cut fiber. After the fiber is
reconnected, the optical signals are restored and the optical power of each optical amplifier
board automatically returns to a normal value.

Perform automatic power equilibrium (APE). If the optical power of channels detected by
the MCA board at the receive end is abnormal, an event is reported to the U2000 LCT.
After the event is confirmed, a command is issued to the optical attenuation adjustment
board at the upstream station to adjust the optical power of the corresponding channels. In
this manner, the optical signal noise ratio (OSNR) of each channel at the receive end is
equalized.

Perform ROADM optical power equalization. After ROADM is enabled for dynamically
configuring WDM services, the WDM equipment outputs multiplexed wavelengths. The
optical power between each channel, however, may be greatly different, especially for new
add wavelengths. To avoid negative impacts on transmission performance, the ROADM
optical power equalization mechanism is provided. This mechanism first determines
whether the wavelengths are pass-through wavelengths or add wavelengths. Then, optical
power adjustment starts. The DWC/WSS adjusts the optical power of pass-through

2 Product Description

Perform intelligent power adjustment (IPA): In the case of a fiber cut, the optical amplifier
board detects signal loss at the local station. The local station reports an event to the U2000
LCT. After the event is confirmed, the optical amplifier boards at the upstream and
downstream stations reduce their output power to a safe value to protect fiber maintenance
engineers from being injured by the laser emitted from the cut fiber. After the fiber is
reconnected, the optical signals are restored and the optical power of each optical amplifier
board automatically returns to a normal value.

Perform automatic power equilibrium (APE). If the optical power of channels detected by
the MCA board at the receive end is abnormal, an event is reported to the U2000 LCT.
After the event is confirmed, a command is issued to the optical attenuation adjustment
board at the upstream station to adjust the optical power of the corresponding channels. In
this manner, the optical signal noise ratio (OSNR) of each channel at the receive end is
equalized.

Configure pre-alerts for optical power at ports.

Dispersion Compensation
l

The G.652 and G.655 fibers have positive dispersion coefficients and positive dispersion
slopes in 1550 nm window. After an optical signal is transmitted over a certain distance,
the accumulation of positive dispersion broadens the optical signal pulse and seriously
affects the transmission performance. To minimize this effect, a negative DCM is used on
networks. It uses negative dispersion to compensate the positive dispersion of fibers, so as
to maintain the original signal pulse.

The OEQ NE can apply dispersion compensation to each band to reach dispersion
equalization.

Wavelength Monitoring
Wavelength monitoring uses the wavelength supervisory unit to monitor the wavelengths that
are transmitted from the WDM-side optical interface of the OTU board (including the service
convergence unit) and to control the wavelength drift. This function ensures stable wavelengths.

WDM PRBS
You can perform PRBS on a board to check the path quality. You can also check whether the
WDM link functions properly before provisioning a service.

BFD Configuration
Bidirectional forwarding detection (BFD) can be used to check the Ethernet link status.
BFD is a simple Hello protocol. It is similar to the neighbor check of those famous protocols in
many aspects. A pair of systems periodically sends detection packets on the channel on which
session between the two systems is created. If a system does not receive any detection packet
from the opposite end in a specific time, the system regards that a failure occurs in some part of
the bidirectional channel to the adjacent system.
The U2000 LCT supports the functions of performing the BFD detection on IP/GRE tunnels
and the inter gateway protocol (IGP).

LPT Configuration
LPT is used to return the remote-end link status to the near end. The near-end equipment performs
operations depending on the remote-end link status. When the intermediate transmission network
of the services becomes faulty, the LPT informs the access equipment at both ends of the
transmission network to enable the backup network. That ensures the normal transmission of
the important data.

Synchronization Protocol Configuration


In the application scenario of dual-homing, the status of the peer equipment needs to be obtained
either for the MC LAG or for the cross-MC LMSP. Meanwhile, the actions on both sides need
to be negotiated based on different fault cases. With the method of adding information of the
peer end, a channel is established for control status synchronization with the peer end. In this
manner, the control packets can be transmitted and received through the channel and link fault
detection can be performed.

LMSP/MC LMSP Configuration


Linear MSP protection contains 1+1 linear MSP and 1:N linear MSP. They use the protection
channel to protect services that are transmitted on the working channel. When the working
channel fails, services are switched to the protection channel. The linear MSP applies to the POS
interface and structured STM interface.
The multi-chassis (MC) LMSP can implement the LMSP among NEs.
The U2000 LCT supports the following functions of LMSP/MC LMSP configuration:
l

Create a linear MSP.

Check the linear MSP switching status.

Perform linear MSP switching.

2 Product Description

QoS Configuration
QoS indicates the performance of the data flow that travels through a network. The QoS is used
to ensure end-to-end service quality. The QoS cannot increase the bandwidth, but it can minimize
the delay and jitter in the network by reasonably allocating and monitoring network resources.
In this way, the quality of important services is ensured.
The DiffServ (DS) domain consists of a group of network nodes that enable the DiffServ
function, that is, DS nodes. In a DS domain, all DS nodes use the same service provision policy
to realize the same per-hop behavior (PHB). The DS nodes are classified into edge DS nodes
and internal DS nodes. The edge DS nodes usually perform complex flow classification on the
traffic that enters the DS domain. Traffic of different types is marked with different PHB service
types. For internal DS nodes, you need to perform only simple flow classification based on PHB
service type.
The U2000 LCT supports the following QoS functions:
l

Configure QoS profile.

Configure DiffServ domains.

Configure ATM CoS mapping.

Configure SVLAN DEI used flag.

Configure simple flow classification and complex flow classification.

Configure CAR and Shaping.

Configure the color blindness mode.

Configure the WFQ schedule policy.

Configure the port WRED schedule policy.

Configure the port WFQ policy.

Configure the service WRED policy.

To simplify the operation and share some common QoS configuration parameters, the
U2000 LCT supports creating QoS function point policy. The function point policies are
as follows: port policy, ATM policy, V-UNI ingress policy, V-UNI egress policy, PW
policy and QinQ policy. By using these function point policies, you can bind the CAR
configuration attribute, shaping configuration attribute, flow classification configuration
attributes, WFQ schedule policy, WRED policy and color blindness mode attributes.

Configure CoS queue mapping.

Supports the application of the QoS policy to multiple NEs.

MPLS Tunnel Configuration


The MPLS tunnel is the tunnel defined in the MPLS protocol. Independent from the service, the
MPLS tunnel realizes end-to-end transmission and carries the PWs related to the service.
See Figure 2-6. Unicast MPLS tunnel is mainly used to transparently transmit point-to-point
PWE3 services.

E-LAN Service Configuration


The E-LAN is a multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet service. It connects to multiple V-UNI and
NNI access points. It realizes packet forwarding and interconnection by using the MAC address
self-learning scheme of layer 2.
See Figure 2-12. The HQ of Company A is in City 3. Company A has Branch A in City 1, City
2, and City 3, and has Branch B in City 1 and City 2. Branch A and Branch B do not have business
with each other. Hence, the data should be isolated between the two branches. The HQ has
requirements of communicating with each branch and accessing the Internet.
Figure 2-12 E-LAN service

Different VLANs are used to identify service data of different branches by using the E-LAN
service. In this way, data is shared within a branch and is isolated from other branches. The
Internet data of the HQ is also isolated from the internal service data by using the VLAN.
The U2000 LCT supports the following functions of configuring E-LAN services on a per-NE
basis:
l

Create E-LAN services that are carried on port.

Create E-LAN services that are carried on PWs.

Create E-LAN services that are carried on QinQ links.

3.1 Precautions for Using the U2000 LCT Safely


This topic describes the precautions for using the U2000 LCT safely. The operation precautions
that have to be taken to ensure correct operations are as follows:
l

Do not modify the system time when the U2000 LCT is running. Set the time before
installing the U2000 LCT.
To modify the system time of the server, exit the U2000 LCT server and restart it after
the modification.
To modify the system time of the client, exit the U2000 LCT client and restart it after
the modification.

Avoid modifying the name and IP address of the U2000 LCT server computer. During
installation, you need to change the IP address to 127.0.0.1. Otherwise, the U2000 LCT
fails to be started if you modify the system IP address of the server after installation. You
can change the IP address as follows: Select the server and click Modify Server. In the
dialog box that is displayed, change the IP address to 127.0.0.1.

On Windows, you must log in to the U2000 LCT server as the user you have chosen during
U2000 LCT installation. Do not change the user name of Windows.

The data created on the NE is consistent with that on the U2000 LCT. When an NE is
configured and runs normally, you can store the data on the NE and the data on the U2000
LCT consistent through manual or automatic synchronization.

It is recommended to synchronize the NE configuration data to the NMS and query the
latest NE data before setting the parameters.

When a hazardous operation is performed, the U2000 LCT asks for confirmation. For
example: When you download the U2000 LCT data to the NE, it can interrupt the services.

The installation directory of U2000 LCT must contain only alphanumeric characters and
underscores. Otherwise, the U2000 LCT Online Help cannot be used.

If you select a non-English language for an NE when maintaining it, the GUIs are in illegible
characters when you query the information about the NE.

Ensure that no other data communication or transmission process is running on the OS of


the U2000 LCT server.

3.2 Starting or Shutting Down the U2000 LCT


The U2000 LCT uses the standard client/server architecture and single user mode. So, you are
recommended to start or shut down the U2000 LCT by strictly observing the following

Description of Character Sets on the U2000 LCT


l

If the character set that an NE transfers to the U2000 LCT is different from the character
set of the interface data (NE source file) on the U2000 LCT, the data transferred to the
U2000 LCT is displayed as illegible characters. The data that the U2000 LCT applies to
the NE is also displayed as illegible characters, resulting in the read failure of the NE.
Therefore, modifying character sets is not allowed. Character sets are set only when illegible
characters are displayed. The setting rules are as follows:
NMS Language

Character Set

Chinese

GBK

English

ISO-8859-1

Spanish

UTF-8

Russian
German
Portuguese
Italian
French
Arabic
l

In the case of the MSTP, WDM, PTN/ATN, router, and switch NEs, if the character sets
on an NE are changed, the U2000 LCT refreshes the character sets in real time so that the
character sets on the U2000 LCT are the same as those of the NE. At the same time, the
U2000 LCT notifies the user that the NE character sets are changed by means of an event.

In the case of a new NE, if the data on the U2000 LCT has illegible characters or the
language changes, you can query and modify the character set attribute of a single NE or
NEs in batches in the NE Character Set Management window.

The character set of an old NE cannot be modified because it does not have the character
set attribute interface. In the NE Character Set Management window, if the queried NE
an old NE, the related record is grayed out.

CAUTION
Modifying character sets is not a commonly performed operation. Generally, it is not allowed
to modify character sets. If there is a definite multi-language requirement and the character set
needs to be changed to UTF-8, you need to transcode the data of original character set on the
NE to ensure that the original data is normally displayed.

Relationship Between Characters and Bytes


In user manuals, the description of the restrictions on entering characters in text boxes is specific
to only the English characters. For the restrictions on other languages, see the following table
and calculate the occupied bytes of each language.

Background Information
l

The alarm list represents the merged alarm logs. The alarm merging rule is that alarm logs
with the same alarm ID, alarm location information, and alarm source are merged into one
record in the alarm list.

Alarm log records all the alarms received by U2000 LCT. In the alarm log, each alarm is
displayed as a record.

For a newly reported alarm log, if the alarm list contains the record that meets the alarm
merging rule, the alarm log is merged into the previous record in the alarm list regardless
of the acknowledgment and clearance state of the record. After merging, the frequency of
the record is added by 1. The displayed acknowledgment and clearance state of the record
is subject to that of the latest alarm log.

You can query details of every alarm in the alarm log browsing window.

Acknowledged and cleared alarms become history alarms after you set the lifecycle. All
non-history alarms are called alarm lists. For details on how to set the lifecycle, see Setting
the Lifecycle of the Alarm List.

A Service Ports Description

A.1 Background
This section describes the service ports used by management systems.
To ensure the network security, you can take measures on the customer's network. The following
are the two cases that affect the network security:
l

Security filtering settings such as routers or firewalls are configured in the network
environment where the NMS runs. When carrying out the project, avoid the service ports
used by the NMS being filtered by those security filtering settings.

Some service ports providing system services are closed to prevent network or virus attacks.
Note that the service ports used by the NMS should not be closed, and otherwise the NMS
will not run properly.

A.2 Notes and Precautions


In the practical communication process, the source (the server) and the sink (the client) use
relevant ports. Usually you only need to specify the source port, and the sink port is dynamically
created.
Note the following during the project implementation:
l

The service ports used by the NMS should not be closed.

If there are routers or firewalls between the source and the sink, then check all ports used
by the source and the sink to make sure that they can be opened, and the source can
communicate with the sink.

A.3 Service Ports to Be Filtered


This section describes the service ports to be filtered.
In the security policy of the firewall, you must filter the traffic according to the IP address and
the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)/User Datagram Protocol (UDP) port number.
The TCP/UDP port number is used to split a datagram, and transfer the datagram to the proper
applications.
The TCP/UDP port range is 0~65535, which is divided into three segments:
l

0~1023: Identifies some standard services, such as FTP, Telnet, and Trivial File Transfer
Protocol (TFTP).

A
Alarm hold-off time

Alarm delay includes start delay and end


delay. An alarm is not regarded as being
generated until the NE has been detecting it
for a period of time, and this period of time is
the alarm start hold-off time. An alarm is not
regarded as being cleared until the NE has
been detecting the ending of it for a period of
time, and this period of time is the alarm end
hold-off time. Setting the hold-off time can
avoid the generation of unnecessary alarms
due to misreport or jitter.

Alarm severity

According to ITU-T recommendations, the


alarm is classified into four severities:
Critical, Major, Minor, Warning.

Alarm

A visible or an audible indication to notify the


person concerned that a failure or an
emergency has occurred. See also Event.

Attribute

Property of an object.

Issue 02 (2011-09-24)

Binding

In virtual concatenated payload


configuration, designating one binding
number to identify the VC4s of the same
virtual concatenated payload is called "bind".
If a fault occurs to one of the bound services,
all bound services will switch as a whole.

Board View

The Board View displays the ports and the


paths in different colors depending on their
current status, with legend and description

Configuration data

The data that configures the NE hardware for


coordination between this NE and other NEs
in the entire network and operation of
specified services. Configuration data is the
instruction file of NEs, and it is the key for
efficient network running. The typical
configuration data includes board
configuration, clock configuration and
protection relationship.

Configure

To set the basic parameters of an operation


object.

Connection point

A reference point where the output of a trail


termination source or a connection is bound
to the input of another connection, or where
the output of a connection is bound to the
input of a trail termination sink or another
connection. The connection point is
characterized by the information which
passes across it. A bidirectional connection
point is formed by the association of a
contradirectional pair.

Connection

A "transport entity" which consists of an


associated pair of "unidirectional
connections" capable of simultaneously
transferring information in opposite
directions between their respective inputs and
outputs.

Cross-connect slot

To perform GE ADM, an OTU board with


that function has to be in a cross-connect slot.
Several successive cross-connect slots form a
cross-connect unit group. You can only
configure cross-connections within a crossconnect unit group.

Current alarms

Alarms that do not clear, or has cleared but is


not acknowledged.

Current performance data

The performance data stored in the current


register is called current performance data.
The current 15-minute or 24-hour register
(only one for each) is applied to collect the
performance data in the current monitoring
period. It changed within the monitor period.

D
DCC

Within an STM-N signal there are two DCC


channels, one is the 192 kbit/s DCC-R
channel composed of bytes D1D3, and the
other is the 576 kbit/s DCC-M channel
composed of bytes D4D12. All NEs can
communicate with one another through the
DCC-R. The DCC-M is not the regenerator
section overhead and does not support
communications among regenerators, and it
is used to support communication channels of
more universal purpose. For example, it
supports TMN as a physical channel of ECC.

E
ECC

Embedded Control Channel. An ECC


provides a logical operations channel
between SDH NEs, utilizing a data
communications channel (DCC) as its
physical layer.

F
Failure

The fault cause persisted long enough to


consider the ability of an item to perform a
required function to be terminated. The item
may be considered as failed; a fault has now
been detected.

Fault

A fault is the inability of a function to perform


a required action. This does not include an
inability due to preventive maintenance, lack
of external resources, or planned actions.

H
History alarms

Alarms that have cleared and been


acknowledged.

History performance data

The performance data stored in the history


register and the auto-report performance data
stored on the Web LCT are called history
performance data in a unified way.

I
IP address

In the TCP/IP protocol, it is used to uniquely


identify the address of the communication
port, which consists of four bytes in decimal
digits, for example, 129.9.161.55.

NE Panel

NE Panel displays subracks, boards, and ports


in different colours depending on their status.
In the Web LCT, most equipment
configuration, monitoring, and maintenance
are performed in the NE Panel window.

NE

Network Element. NE includes the hardware


unit and the software running on it. Usually,
one NE has at least an SCC (system control
and communication) board which responsible
for the management and monitoring of the
NE. The NE software runs on the SCC board.

NM

Network Management. In the


telecommunication network management
architecture, the Web LCT is an element
management system that supports all

Performance threshold

Performance events usually have upper and


lower thresholds. When the performance
event count value exceeds the upper
threshold, a performance threshold-crossing
event is generated; when the performance
event count value is below the upper
threshold for a period of time, the
performance threshold-crossing event is
ended. In this way, performance jitter caused
by some sudden events can be shielded.

Route

The IP route selection is in table driving


mode. In each host and each router of the
Internet, there is a routing table that contains
information about how the service is
transmitted from the source to the sink,
providing a basis for route selection. Ethernet
static routing in ET1 refers to the mapping
relationship between the Ethernet port and the
bound path. Its routing type includes port
routing and VLAN routing. Port routing: It
means configuring a route between the
Ethernet port and the bound path port, which
is usually used for point-to-point networking
communication; VLAN routing: It means
configuring a route between the Ethernet port
and the bound path port based on the VLAN
service. It can be used flexibly in point-topoint, point-to-multipoint or multipoint-tomultipoint communication. The
implementation is to divide and converge the
data stream according to the VLAN flag of
the packet. As a VLAN flag can be added to
the Ethernet port, the equipment can be
applied more flexibly.
